Where I Find You

"We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment." - Alan Watts

Where I Find You

In unexpected
pathways through furzy gardens
and forgotten fields
looking at fine points
to find wild secret beauty,
find heart illumined
beyond and between,
in that sweep you hold this world,
formed, perfectly placed.

  1. i'm so excited. just yesterday driving the backroads i said to robert, you know, once i drove these backroads and lamented, thought, oh, i want, i want. all about wanting to move there, hoping to somehow be there. now it is about being there now. now it is all about the moment of being there. truthfully, there is a sweet drop of lament, but it's more like a woman who loves a man she'll never have. to be driving down a backroad. barriers have broken down. it's not that i want to own the backroads, but rather that, now we own one another, or rather, ownerships means nothing at all. we are more like lovers.


  2. I like the idea of the backroads and you as lovers. *smooch*

    Ghost, thanks for giving me a new singer. Didn't know her.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
